I sing the mighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise;
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at thy command,
And all the stars obey.
I sing the goodness of our God,
That filled the earth with food;
That formed the creatures with a word,
And then pronounced them good.
God, how thy wonders are displayed,
Wherever I turn my eye:
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky!
There's not a plant or flower below,
But makes thy glories known;
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
By thy great power alone;
While all that borrows life from thee
Is ever in thy care,
Wherever humankind can be,
Thou, God, art present there.
